solar metal printer

well, it has been a long time since I have posted anything to this blog so I will give something of a update on my current projects. I have been working on a solar printer using a fresnel lens prefocus and lenses from a rear projection tv as final focus. they are being attached to a inverted delta printer to provide the movement axis. I have several spools of mig wire to feed into the melt zone and some nickle and titanium wire to test if the temperature is sufficient to melt them. When I get successful print or verification of failure i will post again.
